Realizing Rights: The Ethical Globalization Initiative

Realizing Rights: The Ethical Globalization Initiative (Realizing Rights) aims to put human rights principles and standards at the heart of global governance and policy-making, ensuring the needs of the poorest and most vulnerable are addressed on the global stage. Realizing Rights' Global Health Program promotes policy solutions to address health inequities through strengthening the capacity of political leaders, linking country level best practice to global policy, developing new evidence, and providing effective forums for debate and implementation of new policy action for improved global health.

The Results for Development Institute

The Results for Development Institute (R4D) is an independent, nonprofit organization that provides analysis and advice to governments, funders, and development organizations to help low and middle income countries reduce poverty and accelerate social and economic progress.  With expertise in many dimensions of development – including specialties in economics, health policy, and good governance – R4D works with development leaders, globally and at country level, to design and test new solutions to development challenges.  R4D concentrates on long-term engagements, where its strengths can assist in translating ideas and evidence into sound policy and program options that enable countries and development partners to achieve measurable results.

The Council of Women World Leaders

The Council of Women World Leaders (the Council) is a network of current and former women presidents and prime ministers that seeks to mobilize the highest-level women leaders globally for collective action on issues of critical importance to women and equitable development. The Council works closely with women ministers organized into several Council networks by specific disciplines, including Ministers of Health. The Council has convened numerous ministerial meetings of women ministers of health which has created a unique space for health ministers to share best practices from developing and developed country experiences and to form a powerful and united force for policy change, with a gender perspective.

The World Health Organization

The World Health Organization (WHO) is the directing and coordinating authority for health within the United Nations system. It is responsible for providing leadership on global health matters, shaping the health research agenda, setting norms and standards, articulating evidence-based policy options, providing technical support to countries and monitoring and assessing health trends.
